Hello folks! How are you doing this lovely, cold day? It has been so, so gray here and I am longing for sunshine. I have a finish to show you today that is a bit of a bright spot in the grayness of this winter. The triangle quilt for RSC14 is finally a finished top! And it turned out to be a little bit of a surprise, so I've named it Triangle Surprise:
Notice anything? No borders! I never did find a border that I liked with
it, and after auditioning several, I decided to be all modern and go
without. Plus, I do love the floating effect of the triangles on this fabric. I did add a 2 inch border of the sashing and setting fabric all
around just to make it a little bigger and avoid having all bias edges.
The fabric seems to have a striped effect in the pictures, but I didn't
notice that in person, so I'm calling that a camera effect.
This quilt turned out to be a beauty, but it gave me some fits along the
way. I've done on point settings many times, but this time I seemed to
have a problem thinking about it properly. For some reason, nothing
wanted to go together correctly. And those cornerstones kept getting turned strangely, but they were totally worth the work. I love them!
Doing a happy dance about this happy, scrappy quilt!
So, we are nearing Christmas, and I'm going to set aside most of my projects for the next week. I may do some on the Odd Fellow's quilt, and I want to make some more Drunkard's Path blocks, just to have something to work on. Otherwise, it will be baking central around here as there are tons of Christmas cookies and breads still to be baked, plus presents to wrap and two small things left to shop for. And then the family shows up!
I may or may not post something next week, so if I don't get another chance, I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas! (Cue the Jose Feliciano song!) And if you celebrate a different holiday (or no holiday!), I wish you a wonderful, happy week as well.
Peace and joy to you and yours!
